About Samantha

I have been in education for 16 years. I have taught grades 7-12 in several areas from social studies to family and consumer sciences to business to ELL. I have also taught adults, continuing ed for teachers and English to parents. I have tutored homebound students, online students and regular ed students. I have tutored students who are trying to graduate early, receive their GED or recover lost credits.

I enjoy sports, (especially high school and college), travel, arts and animals. My students will tell you what they like about me most is that I know they are still kids and that I make learning fun. They love the stories I tell them about my family and my summer job experiences. One thing I always tell them is that just because I am a teacher I still need to look up the answers every now and then too. I think they like knowing that because it shows them I am human.

I have taught English to many different ethnic backgrounds and ages (7th grade to adults). I include a lot of culture, not only from where they have come but American culture. I feel that this is important and is a strength for me when working with ELL. I have also worked with many students on their ACT and SAT test prep, many have been successful at obtaining high scores.

I taught AP European history as well as taken courses in this area. I have written curriculum for online courses as well as traditional courses. Geography is my favorite area of social studies besides history! 64 hours in college I could not get enough of it. It is one area that I incorporate into all of my courses whether it is ELL or social studies. I have taught government and taken several courses in this area. It is an important area that all students need to know and understand. I have taught this class through Supreme Court cases and history lessons to make it more relevant. I have taught, written curriculum and tutored in this area. Outside of Geography, history is probably my strongest area of knowledge.

I love teaching and working one on one with students, I believe that much of the success in school comes from students having confidence in themselves and tutoring is one way to build that confidence. I am always looking for new ways to explain and teach concepts. I would love the opportunity to help you find success.
